You are not responsible for the destiny of others: souls choose their life according to the Sacred Law of Free Will. Bless everyone and their journey.

on a thin strip of a path along the cold green marshes on either side she goes under a starlit night with a bite of a moon hanging to her right. she pulls onto her shawl as the pecan branches point eastward. she takes small, brave footsteps while an owl hoots a caution to her anxious mind. i must find brother, she mutters, i can't go home to step mother without him. the cherry blossoms pray for her as she slowly approaches an old, abandoned barn by the dark foliage where the crickets chirp. she reaches into her pocket and feels the half a loaf of bread left there. her throat dry, her stomach sunken, she walks on.
